Obituary

Our beautiful daughter, Jennifer Nicole Piscitella, 28, of Rotterdam NY, was quietly taken from this world after an accidental overdose on April 29, 2019. Her pain and embarrassment from her addiction has ended. Heroin is a nasty drug…it calls our children out and promises them confidence, thin bodies, and a best friend for life! It’s all lies! Confidence changes to anxiety, thin bodies change to brittle bodies, and the best friend turns into a friend that you hate! Please, if you are reading this obituary and your thinking I’ve got a handle on this, or I can control this, you can’t. Jen thought she could handle it. Now she’s an angel in heaven. As much as we tried to help, it has to be up to you. Ask for help and we, your loved ones, will come running.

What we will miss the most about our Jennifer is her “Happy”. She had this silly bold happy that was contagious. Her smile lit up a room with her beautiful dimples. Jennifer had this funny dance she would do to make everyone laugh, we will miss this so much! Life will surely not be the same without our Jen. She was a gift from God, and we truly believe that. Jen has brought much light into our lives, and for that we are thankful. She is now our Angel in heaven watching over us here on earth. "My baby girl may not be here physically, but she is working miracles from Heaven and as her mother I couldn't be more proud."

Jennifer was a graduate of Mohonasen High School. She was a high honor student. Also enjoyed playing the game of basketball. We do have to say that she had an awesome 3 point shot. She continued that love of basketball at SUNY Cobleskill College. Helped coach basketball for grades 3rd -8th for the Mohonasen’s Lady Warriors with her Dad. Loved animals and the ocean!

Her family is saddened to the core by her loss. Jennifer leaves behind her, Parents Anthony and Lynne Piscitella, her sisters Melissa and Taylor Piscitella. Her Aunts, Kimberly Pangburn, Donna LaValley (Larry), Kelly Grabkowski (Steve) Tina Demers (Duke) along with many beautiful cousins.

She is reunited in heaven with her Grandparents, Mary and Joe Piscitella (Anthony) and Bob and Betty Perry (Lynne).

Calling hours to which relatives and friends are invited to attend will take place on Sunday, May 5, 2019 from 1-4 P.M. at Bond Funeral Home, 1614 Guilderland Avenue, Schenectady. A service to celebrate Jennifer’s life will be held on Monday, May 6 at 10 A.M. at the funeral home with Rev. O. Robert DeMartinis officiating. Burial will be private at the convenience of the family.

Memorial contributions may be made in Jennifer’s memory to the Animal Protective Foundation, 53 Maple Avenue, Schenectady, NY 12302.

A very special thank you to Frank Cagnina Jr. and Stacy Vertucci, owners of Courtney Funeral Home, 25 Townsend Street, Walton N.Y. and Robert Bond and the staff of Bond Funeral Home, Schenectady. They received Jennifer and have taken good care of her through this process. We love you! To leave a special message of hope and comfort for the Piscitella family please visit www.bondfuneralhome.com

We did not know Jennifer, but we do know the pain that you are experiencing as we lost our son in February 2018 under similar circumstances. We salute your transparency and willingness to be public about her accident. Hopefully other bereaved parents will follow your example and create an awareness that will save lives.
It is difficult to see it now, but over time your pain and grief will get better. You will never forget and you will be forever changed, but you will go on.
God Bless!

I do not know you but have read your daughters obituary over and over again and cried myself to sleep as I could not get this out of my mind. Thank you for sharing a part of you in an effort to help others who you do not even know. What an incredible gift you are giving to so many who you know and do not know. I can assure you that what you have shared is helping myself as well as others. Peace be with you always.

My deepest deepest sympathy to you all. I didn't know Jennifer....but I feel like I did when I read what you had beautifully written about her and her life. My brother is 25, one of thr best people in the world, and reminds me so much of your angel. Thank you for sharing the truth behind so many broken hearts. The scary cold hard truth...we are trying so hard to help my brother and his horrible addiction to this horrible poison....we are st our wits end ad well. Just know you did just what me and my family are doing now and that is just trying our hardest....🙏 💛

I am so deeply sorry for the friends and family who are grieving over the loss of Jennifer. It takes a lot of love and strength to support and encourage those we love who struggle with addiction. Jehovah God truly loves those who help people who are afflicted by the pain of this world. 1 Thessalonians 5:14, 1 john 5:19

No matter how much or many the struggles of Jennifer were, I pray you are comforted knowing Jennifer is precious in Jehovah God's eyes. Luke 12:6,7
I hope you find peace in the hope of being reunited with Jennifer under much better circumstances! Revelation 21:4
